Not in comparisons of Anderson Silva or GSP (international reach)... But aside from few names like Cain, JJ, RR. His fan base is by far larger than any other opponent hes ever faced including Robbie Lawler ( one of my fav fighters ) Or larger than the vast majority of UFC fighters And it is so ironic that he did it without trying. In fact he loathes interviews, media, "beauty pageants" Almost like a Kurt Kobain of MMA. Not surprised in his choice of walkout songs (deftones).
